CD151: CD151 Protein | CD151 Antibody

CD151 Gene family

CD151 Background

Tspan8 and CD151 are metastasis-promoting tetraspanins and a knockdown (kd) of Tspan8 or CD151 and most pronounced of both tetraspanins affects the metastatic potential of the rat pancreatic adenocarcinoma line ASML. CD151- and Tspan8-competent tumor exosomes support matrix degradation, reprogram stroma and hematopoietic cells and drive non-metastatic ASML-CD151/Tspan8kd cells towards a motile phenotype. Distinct contributions of CD151 and Tspan8 to skin wound healing rely on preferentially CD151 anchoring basal keratinocytes and Tspan8 promoting motility. Transfection of non-permissive PK-15 cells with porcine CD151 cDNA conferred the susceptibility to PRRSV infection, indicating an important role of the porcine CD151 in PRRSV infection of porcine cells.
